At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon (nicknamed the ‘Notorious RBG’).
Bader Ginsburg’s career spans several decades, and she single-handedly changed the legal framework for women in the United States. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the highest court in the U.S. has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now.
RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg's exceptional life and career from directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen. This is a fantastically inspiring film about a real-life superwoman.
The 6.00pm screening on Thurs 10 Jan will be followed by a short panel discussion on the theme of “Diversity in Legal Representation” organised in conjunction with the QUB Gender Network, which is composed of academic staff and students from within the School of Law and the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work. The discussion panel will feature a range of local perspectives, including those of law students, legal academics, as well as practicing lawyers.
The Judge provides rare insight into Shari’a law, an often-misunderstood legal framework for Muslims, told through the eyes of the first woman judge to be appointed to the Middle East’s religious courts.
